Lesley N. Origins: Devil and the Bailiff - Info? (16) Devil and the Bailiff - Info? 22 Jan 00

The Devil and the Bailiff (aka The Devil and MaGlyn, aka McGlynn) was posted to DT and noted that the words were by Cathal MacGarvey. It is in Steve Roud's Folksong Index with a note that it was collected in Northern Ireland by Sean O'Boyle and Peter Kennedy - but the date is 1952. The air is said to be traditional. Can anyone give me some background on Cathal MacGarvey or the tune??

As always, thanks!
